Most influential Street Photographers 2016

Introduction

About a year ago we asked you, our Streethunters.net Readers, to make a list. The list we wanted you to create was that of the 20 most Influential Street Photographers for 2015. In that post we asked you to nominate as many Street Photographers as you liked. The nominees that you named, then got added into a long list and we asked you to vote and from that vote we got the short list that was finally published.

The numbers from last year

The 20 Influential Street Photographers 2015

So, last year we all nominated together 75 Street Photographers. Then you voted 21,137 times and from those 21,137 votes, 20 names stood out. These names got into the first ever crowdsourced list of Street Photographers. A list that you made and that has been viewed more than 76645 times (at the time of writing this).

Let’s do this again!

So, this year we invite you all to do this again! Things have changed in the Street Photography scene. There are new names that are being mentioned all the time on the Social Networks, there are others out there that are trying hard to make a difference, influencing people around them. More and more Street Photographers are publishing books, filming short documentaries about Street Photography, being interviewed, winning awards and more. The list of names is ever changing and keeps on getting more and more interesting. So, since things are always evolving and ever changing we ask you once again to make your suggestions by sharing your favourites with us!

You make suggestions and share your favourites with us

Send in your favourite street photographers

Just like last year, we the Editorial team, have already made a list of names of 21 Street Photographers that we think are the most influential for 2016. We want you to add to this list by posting as many names of Influential Street Photographers as you like in the comments. You can post 1 name or 50 names. All names will be added to a poll and then we will all vote on them.

ATTENTION: These names will be filtered by us, we will not accept names of Street Photographers that aren’t truly influential.

So for example if you have been a Street Photographer for the last 6 months and you want exposure and you think you can add your name to this list, think again. We want you to suggest true, influential Street Photographers. We will accept suggestions for a week, until next Wednesday evening. Then, we will take those suggestions and have a poll for another week. When the votes are in, we will know who the “The 20 most Influential Street Photographers for 2016” are.

The names Street Hunters recommend

Here are the 21 names of Street Photographers that we recommend in random order. We gave ourselves a limit of 7 names each so we wouldn’t get too carried away:

  1. Elliott Erwitt
  2. Mark Cohen
  3. Ed Templeton
  4. Josef Koudelka
  5. Stacy Kranitz
  6. Tatsuo Suzuki
  7. Daido Moriyama
  8. Eric Kim
  9. Gabi Ben Avraham
  10. Boris the Flash
  11. Alex Webb
  12. David Alan Harvey
  13. Martin Parr
  14. Bruce Davidson
  15. Valerie Jardin
  16. Dirty Harry
  17. Bruce Gilden
  18. Boogie
  19. Pau Ll. Buscató
  20. Tavepong Pratoomwong
  21. Narelle Autio

Each of the above Street Photographers are influential in their own right. For one reason or another. Somehow they have shaped the wider Street Photography community and are continuing to do so. We look forward to receiving your suggestions.

So, come on! Send in the names of the Street Photographers that you think are the most influential for 2016!

ATTENTION: If you can’t comment on our website for some reason, try a Social Network login to comment. If again you can’t comment, just visit our Facebook Page and share your suggestion in the comments of the post there.

Cover of Joseph Koudelka's Exiles

Introduction

I’ve had Josef Koudelka’s Exiles in my possession for almost a month. And even after that time, after dozens of viewings, I’m struggling to find what would be the adequate words, much less the organization of them, to “review” it. In my short time collecting photobooks, I found this to be, simply put, perfection. Exiles commands respect.

As much as I dislike putting the cart before the horse, so to speak, I’m well aware I just did with that introduction. But I did it with good reason. Exiles (Aperture, 2014), now in its third and final edition, is one of the most highly praised photo books that I’ve shopped for. Previous editions, with the first being published in 1988, fetch hundreds of dollars for decent copies. This edition, with ten more images than previous ones goes for close to $50 USD on Amazon, and that is my budget ceiling for books. So I bought Exiles with confidence. I had seen just a small sample of images and I brutishly expected to be impressed, considering the book’s pedigree and price. I didn’t expect to be absolutely awed. Needless to say, I was. And still am.

Street Photograher of the Week by Josef Koudelka

Josef Koudelka was born in 1938, trained as an aeronautical engineer until 1967 when he decided to take up photography.

He had returned from a project photographing gypsies in Romania just two days before the Soviet invasion, in August 1968. He witnessed and recorded the military forces of the Warsaw Pact as they invaded Prague and crushed the Czech reforms. Koudelka’s negatives were smuggled out of Prague into the hands of the Magnum agency, and published anonymously in The Sunday Times Magazine under the initials P. P. (Prague Photographer) for fear of reprisal to him and his family.

His pictures of the events became dramatic international symbols. In 1969 the “anonymous Czech photographer” was awarded the Overseas Press Club’s Robert Capa Gold Medal for photographs requiring exceptional courage.
